Reena Dutta – Aamir Khan Story

In a very filmy way, the relationship of Reena Dutta and Aamir Khan started. Interestingly, they both were neighbors. For hours, they stared at each other through their windows. Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta’s age was not much at that time. Finally, the actor gathered the courage to tell her about his love. However, Reena turned him down because she was skeptical. Even though he approached her various times, she always turned him down.

Later, Reena confessed to him that she felt the same way about him just when Aamir had given up hope. In 1999, the actor said during an interview, “I spent a little more time than natural in front of my window. I just told her that I loved her.” He further continued, “And I hoped that she felt the same about me.”

And after two days, she said that she felt the same way. He confessed that when Reena’s answer was negative, he was heartbroken and avoided the window all the time. He wanted to stay away and get over her as soon as possible.

Aamir Khan’s Love Letter With Blood

The Bollywood actor has once written a love letter to Reena Dutta with his blood. Isn’t it shocking? Apparently, he thought it would be a good idea to express his feelings with blood when Aamir was in a relationship with Reena. Unfortunately, it got backfired because Reena did not like this gesture at all. She asked him never to repeat such a stunt again. Later, Aamir realized that that was not an appropriate way to show your love.
